As you all know, I attend the University of Nebraska and am a huge fan of our football team. We have a game coming up, and it’s a big one. We play Texas this weekend in the Big 12 Championship.
Since Texas is undefeated and ranked #3 in the country by the BCS, they are huge favorites. I have no problem with that, but I just wanted to ask a question.
If you don’t follow the Huskers as I do, you may need a little information before I ask the question. We played Virginia Tech earlier in the season and outplayed them all over the field. We blew a in the final minute by one blown coverage. But we should (more…)
The A.V. Club occasionally has a recurring group of articles called “I watched this on purpose” (the link will take you to many examples). It consists of one of their critics watching a movie that is considered to be horrible and looking for some good in it. It could be because the movie has a strong following, has some supposed value or has contributed to pop culture in some way, but they watch it and report on various things. What is the movie infamous for? What was the curiosity factor (why watch it)? What was it like to watch? And, finally, how much of it was not a waste of time? Jumper (which is absolute garbage), for instance, was considered mostly a waste of time while Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo was considered 85% not a waste of time. This does not mean it was a great film, but it was highly entertaining because it was absolutely (unintentionally) hilarious.
So it is in this spirit that I will grade New Moon, the tween sensation that long ago swept (and continues to sweep) the nation.
New Moon is one of the culprits most responsible for inundating the world with loads of vampire stories and kids and adults that pretend to be vampires. What might be worse than creating hordes of kids that wish they were vampires is the fact that vampires are no longer scary; they are just beautiful, misunderstood heartthrobs that just need a chance. It is also responsible for launching the career of Kristen Stewart, who apparently thinks acting sad and melancholy works for any role and any situation (if you didn’t see Adventureland, guess how she acts).
